You might have seen my recent post on our Gousto experience, and the Spicy Haddock Linguine recipe that I shared. I love recipe and food posts so much that I decided to share the second recipe too. This time something really different for us, Sea Bass on Chorizo Chowder.
Neither of us have had Sea Bass before or Chowder for that matter, especially at home.
2 Sea Bass fillets
100g British mini cooking Chorizo
1 garlic clove
1tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tbsp fiery chilli flakes
50g baby kale
1 tbsp flour
Boil kettle, peel and finely chop the shallots and garlic. Chop the mini Chorizo into small chunks.
Heat a large pan (must have lid) with a little butter to a medium heat. Add the Chorizo and cook for 4-5 minutes or until sizzling.
Add the shallot, garlic, smoked paprika and chilli flakes, and cook for 1 minute. Add 1 tbsp of flour and cook for a further minute.
Add 500ml of milk and bring to the boil, stirring until a smooth sauce is formed – approximately 3-4 minutes.
Meanwhile, peel and chop the potatoes into bite-size pieces. Add them and 150ml boiled water to the milk and Chorizo sauce and cover, cooking for 18-22 minutes until the potatoes are fork-tender. (make sure to stir the chowder to ensure it doesn’t stick)
Once the potatoes are close to tender, heat a large pan and drizzle with oil and a little butter over a medium-high heat.
Season the Sea Bass with salt and add to the pan once hot, cooking for 3-4 minutes. Flip the Sea Bass and cook for a further minute. Once cooked, removed and place to one side.
Once the potatoes are fully cooked, add the baby kale and cook until wilted – approximately 1 minute with the lid on. Season generously with salt and pepper.
If the chowder is looking a little thick, mix in a little extra milk to loosen it.
Serve the crispy Sea Bass over the chowder in large bowls!! And done!
I think this has to be the best dish we’re made at home! And has definitely inspired us to look into new things to cook at home, though these aren’t recipes for a little one, so will be saving them for date nights at home.
